Unlike conventional fire training programs, this course takes into account the complexities of people with complex conditions.
We find when training this subject that many staff can ‘talk the talk’ but when an emergency happens chaos prevails. We run an optional exercise that caters for care homes and domicialrry companies where we simulate a fake alarm silently. This is not to disturb residents whilst we carry out the exercise. Even the most confident of groups learn from experience and practice. Having a fire plan on the wall is not enough!
